* PetTheDog: Josey is by no means a dog, but this trope appears in the final scene, when Josey's friends tell the two Texas Rangers he's dead. Wales shows up, his friends are clearly uncertain of what to do before one of them greets him as "Mr. Wilson" and swiftly explains what's going on in a manner that seems perfectly natural. It's implied by the demeanor of the two Rangers that they're not buying it, but they were sent to find Wales and they've got a signed statement by a witness swearing Wales is dead, so they see no reason to pursue the matter further. Upon leaving, one of them tells "Mr. Wilson" that it was "nice seein' you." and the other pointedly says there's won't be coming back. They leave, Fletcher stays, and both Wales and Fletcher make peace with one another.

Added DiffLines:

* HistoricalVillainDowngrade: The film glosses over the fact that the Confederates (including Josey) were fighting for the right to own slaves.

-->-- '''Fletcher''', ''The Outlaw Josey Wales''

Set during the aftermath of UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar, '''''The Outlaw Josey Wales''''' follows a man whose whole family was killed, leading him to join a group of Confederate guerrillas to track down the killers. After eventually being sold out, however, he is on the run from bounty hunters and Yankee soldiers (including the group who killed his family). Along the way, while racking up a prodigious body count, Wales meets a group of people whom he [[IneffectualLoner reluctantly]] allows to join him. HilarityEnsues. And by "hilarity," we mean "murder." This is a Creator/ClintEastwood movie, after all.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: The character of Lone Watie (implied to be a relative of Civil War general Stand Watie). He claims that the Cherokee declared war on the Union because of their sufferings on the Trail of Tears. The Cherokee Nation was actually split among Union/Confederate lines due to preexisting factional warfare; the Confederate-allied Watie faction was in favor of removal to Oklahoma, and many of them had voluntarily relocated there years before the forced removal of the rest.

* HeyItsThatGuy: One of Wales's many victims is [[{{Seinfeld}} Uncle Leo]], here playing a bounty hunter.
** And Fletcher is obviously trying to put Josey Wales on [[AnimalHouse double-secret probation.]]



* RealLifeRelative: Clint's son Kyle Eastwood played Josey's son.



* TooDumbToLive: The two bounty hunters in the forest, particularly the first one, who ignores his friend's sensible advice that Josey probably has another gun on him. [[spoiler:He does]]
* WagTheDirector: In a weird way, the TropeMaker. Early in filming, Clint Eastwood decided that he could do a better job than the original director, Philip Kaufman, was doing. He therefore arranged for Kaufman to be fired and took over the directorial duties himself. This disgusted the Director's Guild of America enough that they [[RuleBreakerRuleNamer created a new rule]] stating that whenever a film's director is fired, their replacement has to be someone with no previous connections to the film. This is why, nowadays, actors are forced to WagTheDirector rather than just outright firing them and directing themselves. More commonly they just hire someone willing to take orders.
